Congrats, you’re headed to college! Thinking about what to bring can seem overwhelming. Take a look at this list of essentials you’ll need to start the year off on the right foot.

More Than Just a Backpack
Is it time to replace your grimy high school backpack? College backpacks are a must have part of your dorm room. Choose from great backpacks to make it easier to bring along your laptop to class. There are several Laptop Backpacks with one separate laptop compartment able to hold a 17-inch laptop, and a spacious packing compartment roomy for daily necessities. Choose one of these stylish college backpacks to easily transport your college supplies.
Ice, Ice, Baby
Chances are, your dorm isn’t going to come equipped with a hotel-sized ice machine on every floor. No worries. Don’t settle for room temperature water or soft drinks. Get this Deco Chef Compact Electric Ice Maker from Buydig.com and keep an abundance of ice on hand for some cool, refreshing drinks.
When it comes to keeping soft drinks and late-night snacks chilled, a great mini fridge in your dorm room is a total college must-have. But with so many different configurations and sizes, it can be tricky to decide which is the best mini fridge for you, especially since you could be using it for the next four years and more! Dorm rooms are small, and often shared with one or more people, so it really depends on how much space you have. Mini refrigerators, also known as compact refrigerators, vary in size from 1.7 cubic feet, to this 3.2 CU Ft, up to this RCA 4.5 cubic foot Compact Fridge from Buydig.com. If you’re unsure about what size to get, wait until after move-in day so you can measure the space you have available. Really tight on space? Get this Mini beverage refrigerator for your desk top, or compact space. You can cool your drinks at an arm’s reach!
